2:45 pm

i have a knife problem :)

i have a set of wmf that i bought in macy's a million years ago and they're still great. then, my father in law left his knives to me, some very nice sabatier and henckels
2:45 pm
welki

so, even after culling the collection, i still have too many - but can't part with them
2:47 pm
welki

he also left his beautiful fillet knives to me - i need to buy more whole fish
2:47 pm
rururocks

I have a ton of knives too.. I won't toss them
2:47 pm
origami

Those wusthof knives are so expensive.
2:48 pm
welki

i use them all, even the filet knives - the ones i gave away were meh knives that i'd collected over the years
2:48 pm
welki

they're worth it, ori
2:48 pm
rururocks

but they last forever and they sharpen really nicely
2:48 pm
origami

My knives are horrible.
2:48 pm

you've had too many balls up in the air this season
2:50 pm

True :D
2:51 pm

i have no idea what that means, but if he's offering, graciously accept!
2:54 pm

it's just Ori's dryer sense of humor
2:55 pm
origami

Ha
2:56 pm
welki

dryer balls, not drier balls?
2:56 pm
rururocks

at least we're not Catholic and adhering to Lint
2:57 pm
rururocks

ori send me some wool drier balls for xmas... mostly because we were laughing about it on the phone recently
2:57 pm
rururocks

(she doesn't realize I always get even) *INSERT EVIL LAUGH*
2:58 pm
rururocks

That was wool dryer balls.. excuse me
2:58 pm
welki

you know they go in the laundry dryer, not your pantaloons, right? LOL
2:59 pm
rururocks

depends on if I'm trying to show off welki
2:59 pm
welki

not for nothing, those wool dryer balls work amazingly well (on laundry)
2:59 pm

Now the image of ru stuffing dryer balls in his trousers is burned in my brain.
2:59 pm
welki

haha - i can imagine you walking around the cocktail (!) party with a pair in your drawers
3:00 pm
welki

next time he visits, ori, watch him getting out of the car
3:00 pm
rururocks

*do you think he's packing?* I think he's been hung out to dry personally
3:01 pm
welki

yep, sitting on the balls of your assets
3:01 pm
rururocks

gives a whole new meaning to wooly knickers
3:01 pm
welki

all this because i appreciate your taste in knives
3:02 pm
rururocks

I took a chef's class in knives and sharpening knives etc.. wustof are the best for me.. i have big hands
3:03 pm
welki

some sabatiers have wide handles for the big of hand
3:03 pm
origami

I'm feeling sheepish about the balls now
3:03 pm
rururocks

don't be.. i laughed hysterically ori.. it was worth the trouble
3:04 pm
rururocks

although I meant to lamb-baste you at the time
3:04 pm
welki

then again, when you've found a knife you like, and it feels right, no sense changing lanes
3:04 pm
origami

Oh ewe
3:05 pm
rururocks

exactly welki
3:05 pm
rururocks

at the time Ori I didn't know mutton about wool balls
3:06 pm
welki

i learned how to sharpen my knives from a butcher friend - got lazy last spring and ordered an electric sharpener, figuring that, if the knives last another 30 years, who cares. (same thing i did with my calphalon - 20+ years old and it's time they saw the inside of a dishwasher)
3:08 pm
welki

one of my grandchildren loves cooking, so i've started sending her a knife for each birthday/celebration. she loves getting them, and i let her (sort of) choose which one she should get next
3:08 pm
rururocks

sharper knives are much more safer than duller ones.. although you have to really pay attention to chopping and cutting
3:08 pm
rururocks

what a great gift welks
3:08 pm

I started cooking with my grandmother at 5-6 years old

hokie carla

no, do you still or you had one in the past?
3:25 pm
welki

we had one up until about a year ago. when we downsized, we got rid of nearly everything, including the truck and fifth wheel. we live in a beautiful setting, but miss camping - so guess what we're thinking of doing? we put a deposit on a small travel trailer and are looking at tow vehicles
3:26 pm

nice! we'll have to chat more later. we are going to go try to find a pickleball court.
3:26 pm

at this point, it's not likely we'll get on a plane and i really hate staying in hotels/motels, so this seems like the best way to avoid total cabin fever. i hemmed and hawed over the money, but shit, what the heck are we waiting for? until we're old enough to have our licenses taken away?
